Every time I view the images of little cubs that are posted from Londolozi, I marvel at their beauty and innocence and then I hold my breath and pray they will survive. As you well know, many times we have had the heartbreaking news that once again their short lives are over and we mourn for these beautiful little creatures. When luck is on their side, and they survive the incredible odds against them and go on to grow into beautiful strong adults, we rejoice. I’m sure they are very unaware of the ups and downs of our human emotions as we watch life play out for them, but somewhere out here, we are all watching these new little cubs venture forward and hoping and praying that luck will be on their side.

luck is very thing to all creatures including humans. of course whose who fight and try hard with smarts and strength will fare better.

That is so sad about the cheetah cubs. To see that picture of them and then realize they are gone is heartbreaking.
I too hold my breath and pray. So sad when they don’t make it but so happy when they do. I was so glad to see Mashaba and her cub while we were there last month. The cub has really grown and looks healthy and happy which gives me hope for her future, so far she has been a very lucky cub.
